Update on Anna

Anna went to the doctor on Tuesday! She got a good report--everything is looking like it should! yay! The skin graft is taking. Most of her staples were taken out, so she can move about a little easier now. She can also lay down on her side, instead of just her tummy. yay! She goes back again next Tuesday to get the rest of the staples out. I am hoping that after that she can start sitting down again...or at least walking normally... it would things so much easier for her.

She has been such a trooper. I couldn't ask for a better patient. haha. I am now lovingly referred to as "The night nurse" or "Reggie." Reggie being the most appropriate British name Anna could come up with on the fly for her "butler" *ahem* me. We have had some hilarious times together being roommates again, these past 3 (almost 4) weeks. When you're running on lack of sleep and wake in the middle of the night, well, let's just say that everything is hilarious.

In some ways, I am understanding a teensy bit of what new moms face. Yesterday I thought of posting a status like this "Anna slept the whole night through. yay for sleep! She is also doing really well on tummy time. I mean, pretty consistently for 3 weeks. She also ate really well yesterday....." etc...

Overall, God is sustaining us amazingly. Some days are a lot harder than others, but He gives us the grace to keep going.

We are super blessed by all the love and encouragement we have gotten from family and friends. Last night our Community group gals all came out to our house for our usual Wednesday night meeting so Anna could participate. She went to bed saying, "I am so happy!" That was a blessing!

Thanks for your prayers!

Thankful for a coffee date with a friend last week!
It was such a blessing...and so nice to get out of the house for a bit!

    We are clinging to Jesus as you are!! WE are seeing growth in our relationship with Him as we endeavor to get up on His lap and see things from His perspective!!
